Cristian Chironi is a multidisciplinary artist who lives between Mexico City and Italy. He uses different mediums including performance, photography, video, architecture, design, often creating some kind of interaction between them. He has worked on site specific performances and installations, always trying to involve the context, be it human (public) or environmental (space). Currently he lives and works in the homes of great architects around the world, such as Le Corbusier, P. Jeannerret, A. Bustillo, T. Ando, using inhabiting as an artistic language. He travels aboard a FIAT 127 Special, renamed Chameleon for its ability to change colour.
